How do the ants wake up at 4 am

Discussion in 'Advice' started by mbd, Jan 7, 2019.

  1. You could get a woman pregnant and have a baby. They are usually up and down all night for the first 6 months or so. You would already be awake from the 4am feeding.
     
  2. Get a woman pregnant, HELL NO, that’s a job for Guber.

  3. I get up 4 am every morning to take a whiz, then right back to bed.

    Like a clockwork. :D

    Then again..., if I DO have my alarm set to go off at 4am, there's probably a reason for it. Hence, I get up a few minutes later and go do what I was supposed to be doing. Pretty simple, actually...

  7. Make your alarm ringtone an Uber or Lyft ping sound.

    You'll jump out of bed!

  8. I don't bother waking up at any particular time to drive. I get up when my body has been sufficiently rested. There is always enough demand to make it worth my while, any time of day. That's the best thing about doing a gig like this, make your our schedule and hours.

    I've gotten up early in the past, but find that I'm not rested enough, I get tired sooner, struggle towards the end, and/or driving is less enjoyable. If I awake naturally, or when I'm fully rested, I enjoy my driving, the pax, and can stay behind the wheel much longer. The 'enjoying' aspect seems to greatly increase my tips.

    Easy answer: To be up to work at 4am, I get up at 3am. (No alarm clock, but my cat often makes sure I'm awake) I need time to shower, dress, get my makeup done, and have some coffee while the car warms up.

    Kindly: when you start receiving threats from creditors, and IF you care, then you will get up!

    If you get her prego, you may have to revise that wakeup time to 1 or 2am. Babies are expensive as hell, and you're going to need to work overtime to cover those expenses.

    I’m rarely asleep before 1-2am. Been that way since high school. It’s real difficult for me but every time I’ve started at 4:30am, it’s been profitable. Sittin on $60-80 in my market before 9:00am is a pretty swell feeling. But the siren call of the Springair pillow top more often than not wins out. Specially on these chilly mornings!

    But how does 1-2 minute of sleep at 4 am turn into 3 hours of sleep
    u/l pays 2.85 on a run, then 3 hours later it does not turn into 28.50$
     
  16. Alarm goes off, he says just a couple more minutes, goes back to and then sleeps to 7am.

  18. Go to bed at 6 p.m. Wake up eight hours later around 3 a.m. Eat breakfast etc. Go.
    How do morning TV anchors show up to work for the 6 a.m. news show?

    Today I did better, 4 am alarm on, wake up at 6.16 am... big improvement
    By next week, it should be closer to 4 am.:)
    Sorry to say to all the fellow ants, I will be taking away 1-2 runs from my fellow ants next week. It will be just for 1 day only. So do not panic.
